Scottsdale, Ariz.— May 9, 2017—Orion Health™, a leader in population health management and healthcare integration solutions, has been granted a certificate of authority to operate as a Health Data Intermediary (HDI) by the Minnesota Department of Health.

Securing certification was in collaboration with Orion partner, Koble-MN, a Minnesota state-certified health information organization (HIO) currently implementing a Minnesota health information exchange (HIE) powered by the Orion Health Amadeus population health and precision medicine platform. Orion Health and Koble-MN work together to help communities across the state of Minnesota build robust healthcare exchanges, connecting clinical, behavioral health, payer, social determinant and other data sources necessary for person-centered care.

Chad Peterson, president and CEO of Koble-MN, said, “We are thrilled Orion Health has completed the Minnesota HDI certification process, as we continue to work closely with our Orion Health partners to enable exchange across Minnesota, leveraging the state-of-the-art Orion Health Amadeus solution stack.”
